This is what I had too. Also surprised by Houston.

I appreciate the content. Content is more important than the presentation in my book. Thanks.

Are our less than stellar performances against over-matched competition dragging us down that much on kenpom? I mean we dominated UNC which kenpom has at 6.

This is really interesting. Thanks for putting it together. It seems the ACC is the most overrated conference with the CFP overweighting and underweighting the SEC. The B1G just gets screwed.

This is a very useful post! Thanks!

" The Hindenburg. Large, intimidating, moves almost exclusively through the air, held aloft by an unstable gasbag. Been riding for a fall for quite some time. " 

Amazing!

I love these posts! Thank you, Brian! One quibble: How is my dyslexic brain ever going to get our OL coach's name right with this kind of thing? 

"The entire OL, especially Juwann Bushell-Beatty. Ed Warriner. Sean McKeon. Ed Warriner. Shea Patterson's legs. Ed Warinner."

Defense looks more human than in the past, but passing game opens up the run for the good guys

I think Mone will be very important for this game and having Kemp back will be big. Having Gary back is also huge. Maryland was able to double Chase so much because of Gary's absence. With Gary back, the rest of the line gets freed up too. Thanks for sharing the good news umbig11!

FYI, the point counter still doesn't seem to be working for my account. I thought somewhere I saw that it had been fixed, but that doesn't seem to be the case for me. Thanks.

Thanks again for another great post!

How does this look for offenses? Holds called against you by sacks ceded.

Excellent writing and really interesting. Thanks Seth! I learn so much from this site. Now if I could only find a way to put it to any use.

I logged in to say basically this. I love the clip, but if Michigan did that this year, we'd have a player sent to the locker room.

It makes me realize how much I appreciate this coaching staff. Why are we using that play up 14-0 on Minnesota?

I am now smarter for having read this. Thank you.

Thanks SC! I really appreciate reading your analysis on this.

These are very good. Thanks! It seems like we're seeing some Higdon vision issues. I saw three plays where it seemed Higdon left some yards on the field. Plays 2, 3, and 4. I thought he could done better by cutting earlier or going to the wrong hole.

"When the land around you is flat as a pancake any bump on the horizon becomes Mount Something and some goof will stick a ski lift on it. " This line made me laugh right off the bat. I always appreciate your writing, Brian.

Great post. Great point. I agree completely.

That is a deeply satisfying watch. Thanks JWG!

07/27/2018 - 7:34pm I think the swift response…

I think the swift response was triggered by one phrase: "fantastic Michigan Man." Were that phrase excluded, I believe the response on the board would have been different (though some may still have brought up this past). I think many on here hold up the phrase Michigan Man as something to aspire to, and find his actions fall short of their ideals.

I can't vote either. I also created posts for which I received no points since the migration. Thanks for all the great content and managing the community!

Just to be clear, I still think we take this game. This schedule just doesn't have many snoozers on it.

I love this comment. Still I can't help but worry that it still didn't go very well when we faced freshman Haskins.

The headline picture was a comfort to sore eyes! Finally some football content. I didn't mind the previous format as many other readers, but this is a marked improvement. Thanks!

I want England over Belgium, but think it will be France over England. I really like all the teams that are left. I'd be most surprised by Belgium beating France. I like Belgium, but their defense was already somewhat weak and their missing wing back Meunier due to suspension.

I had no idea about that. Good to know. Thanks.

Awesome write-up! I love Simpson. He embodies the blue-collar feel to the team that out-worked just about everybody in their incredible tournament run. 

I have to ask, is anyone getting ads before the GIFs for the first time? What's going on with that?

It only took me 5 years of lurking to get an account--probably a full year to get off the front page and finally look at the board.

Ahh poop. I missed it with this new short message board listing. Mods, please delete.

06/22/2018 - 2:08pm The lack of response from…

The lack of response from alumni and students is surprisingly sad. It seems at least the faculty senate has been involved. They have pushed for the creation of a university board to give the faculty and students more say in the choice of president and an expansion of the current board to the same aim. 

https://www.detroitnews.com/story/news/local/michigan/2018/04/17/msu-faculty-senate-backs-expanding-university-boards/33932671/

That followed the a no confidence vote and asking formally asking the board to step down. It is sad to see that the faculty senate has so little sway.

Caught me before I could correct it. Thanks.

Sorry, neither is running for reelection. How can we get rid of the other 6 or at least the other 4 propping up Engler?

 Brian Breslin and Mitch Lyons are up for reelection this year. I will lose faith in Michigan voters if either one is reelected.

That only works if you know when the last turn is. This game seems like it may have an infinite horizon.

Am I the only one who thought "Swim at your own risk" was going to be a reference to our new wide receivers' coach?

04/20/2018 - 2:19pm MAAR is the type of player

MAAR is the type of player that makes you feel good that Michigan is your team. On a team of likable players, he was my favorite.

But I want to believe now!

03/02/2018 - 2:35pm You've made it!

Hey Brain, You've made it! Your mere musings motivate someone to invest time testing your thoughts. What else do you want to know? 

01/10/2018 - 4:40pm Missing something?

I was surprised by the Washington hire. Do we need to bring in another defensive coach? The defense seemed to be doing pretty well.  

12/05/2017 - 4:36pm Fold championships into 16-team Playoff

I totally thought you were arguing for folding the conference championships into the first round of the playoffs. I think that is an awesome idea. There is then 6 at large spots, which should cover the UCFs of the year.

10/19/2017 - 2:52pm Safeties up close?

If their safeties are going to play up close, hit them with play action to the Gentry up the seam. In general this seems like a good game to have the TEs be the first read. 

10/19/2017 - 2:26pm Just me?

Is it just me or does the defensive staff just give far better interviews than the offensive staff? Even last year when the offense was doing much better, it still seemed that the defensive coaches are much more willing to give answer questions and give information rather than just coachspeak. I even appreciated Zordich's preseason doom talk. At least he was being honest about where he saw the guys relative to where he thought they could be.
